Editorial Review

X.O. has one of the hottest hands in D.C. hip-hop right now and a beyond-the-Beltway buzz for those still getting acquainted with what the DMV is about. Catch him and funk rockers Violet Says 5 for Pandamonium at Liv. The event's title refers to what appears to be a four-legged, upright escapee of the National Zoo who performs with Violet Says 5. Also elevating the evening's crank levels are Godisheus, the raucous hip-hop funk machine headed by DC rap vet Head-Roc.
